Lot of seven shipwreck cobs with hand-written tags, as follows: Two Capitana (1654); two "Jupiter wreck" (San Miguel el Arcangel, 1659); two Consolacion (1681); and one unattributed wreck. 111.62 grams total. All more or less corroded but with decent details: Two Potosi 8R shield-type with crowned-dot-F-dot countermarks on shield side from the Capitana (1654); two Potosi 8R pillars-and-waves assayer E (1654 and date not visible) from the "Jupiter wreck" (1659); one Potosi 8R 1673 and one 4R (date not visible) from the Consolacion (1681); and one Mexico 8R 1732F that is most likely from the 1733 Fleet or Vliegenthart (1735) but with auction reference on tag that might lead to an answer for the diligent researcher. One of the "Jupiter wreck" coins with original certificate from the salvager. SEE INTERNET FOR PHOTO.
